Glad

Filed under: Christianity, Me — Tags: , , , , — qwandor @ 5:31 pm

I am glad that I do not get sick very often. And even when I do it is generally not very bad really.
I am fortunate to have a good flat this year, with a bunch of pretty good guys really.
I am fortunate to have enough food to eat, access to the Internet, reliable electricity and running water.
I am glad to have met and come to know a little many people over the last few years.
I am glad to be part of a good church.
I am very grateful to my parents for bringing me up and caring for me, and for everything they have done for me over the years, the time they have spent with me and for me.
I am glad for the times friend have shown care for me, talking to me, asking how I am, doing things together, making time to see me.
I am fortunate to have a good job, even though it is frustrating at times, but doing what should be relatively interesting work with some intelligent people.
I owe all to God, Yahweh, who sent his Son to die for me, sinner that I am, that I might be forgiven and restored to relationship with Him. I still do not know how this works, but I am told that it is true and I must believe it. Without God’s grace I am hopeless. With it I must live for Him, somehow.

  1. Thank God for what you have written about, and thank God for making you who you are. You are very special to Him. There are so many people who love and care for you because you are a caring and lovely person.Pray for you all the time. God bless.

  2. Whoa! this pretty heavy stuff.

    It’s awesome that you are aware enough to be thankful for all of your good fortunes, so many people take their good fortunes for granted but please don’t think of your self as a sinner. I doubt you have ever done anything bad in your life and I have doubt that you ever will. Sinner is such an ugly word and definitely should not applied to you.

    • This is a rather delayed reply, but here is something, from I John 1:8-10: “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
